 Can he pass other ethnicities in the country? He is also from Thailand like me and in the same year of undergraduate in the US.

Please do not quote pics or links. He is someone who I know in real life.

They are the same guy. What about the TV anchors in the other thread? Can they pass?

I don't know how to describe. Some similarities that I saw are that certain females can overlap more due to their less ethnic features. Differences would be that Vietnamese ppl have certain features like cheekbone or nose area that is different.

Well, I was just curious whether there is an overlap between certain people from Thailand and Vietnamese as they are both in SE Asia. There are actually a much more overlap between Siamese aka Thais and Laotians, Khmers, Malays, Indonesians, Filipinos, etc especially the suburban and rural non-Chinese admixed Siamese/Thais.

Comparison with Chinese can be made only with Sino-Thais who are around 14% of pop although as much as 40% of Thailand population might have a distant Chinese ancestor in their family line.

Anyways, this will be my last thread on comparison between the Siamese and Viets.

I apologized if I have offend or rub you the wrong way.

It's probably not much offense.  I always like to see distinguishing features of different ethnic groups.  Thai people would be originated from southern China and northern VN, so phenotypically would have features which are similar to Vietnamese.  There are different original Thai minorities living in VN along side with Vietnamese, so I wouldn't expect much of a difference.

If you look at this video, I don't know if you can agree on the typical looks of different ethnic groups?
